Little Furball Found Under a Palm Tree

A tiny black furball was found in the cold under a palm tree. This little man brought luck and joy to the family that saved him.

“On the 24th September 2010 whilst running back from the gym, my girlfriend noticed a tiny, bedraggled kitten huddled up and shaking under a palm tree, shaking and cold. We refused to leave it there so we picked it up, wrapped it in a towel and brought it home,” wrote Paul A. on his flickr.

“My parents adopted him and have named him ‘Buster’. He is now in a loving home where my parents treat him like the grandchild they will never have! He grows bigger and stronger every week and is a super member of our family,” added Paul.

On the day he was rescued… safe now

    Love to all the fuzzy black kittens! Mine was a scrawny little tidbit, but she grew up into a lovely cat. I’m positing the tentative hypothesis: Black cats are prettier than black kitten.

    Paul here! Thank you everyone for your lovely comments about Buster and a very special thanks to Amy for featuring him on your wonderful website.

    Buster is still going strong! He has stayed quite small with a slightly shorter-than-normal tail, but he is very happy and lots of fun. He plays a lot with the family of 9 cats of a neighbor and goes on lots of adventures. My parents, whom he lives with, give him tons of love (and food)! He certainly was a blessing to everybody’s lives.

    I shall try and take a couple of new photos of Buster and send them to Amy for this fantastic website.

    Love, Paul, Nicki (my gf), Isa (our dog), and of course, Buster!

    What a heartwarming story, and I’m so glad that Buster found his furever home. I can tell he rules the roost!

    :-) Beautiful kitty…his name should be Lucky Star! :-)

  22. Sherry says:

    It’s great people like you that allow us to see these wonderful stories. God bless you both for caring and taking him home. He is beautiful. Rescued animals are the most loving because they understand what it is to not have food, shelter or someone to love them.

    I cry for the sad stories and I cry for the happy ones. I definately like the happy tears better, so thanks for this batch of happy tears
